Agritechnica Perspectives: Trends in Seeding and Cultivation Technology

The risks that can occur during the growing period have increased. The annual mean weather values have not changed, but the problem appears to be an altered distribution: it frequently remains dry for weeks, and extreme amounts of precipitation only fall in very small regions. As a result, soil and/or seedbed preparation must be more closely examined, as must precision seed distribution and intensive soil contact.
